Bridge Tolls Expected to Rise
Agency will spend $90 million on Newburgh-Beacon span
Tolls on the five spans operated by the state Bridge Authority, including those at Newburgh-Beacon and Bear Mountain, are expected to increase soon.
The agency needs to raise $90 million to re-deck the westbound span of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge next year. The authority also plans to convert its bridges to electronic tolling.
Tolls are $1.50 eastbound, or $1.25 for E-ZPass users. In 2018, the authority collected an average of $2.6 million each month at Newburgh-Beacon and $473,000 at Bear Mountain.
